GoDaddy, the world largest domain registrar with more than 50 millions domains registered and hosting more than 5 millions Web Sites, has recently experiencing huge outage by a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.
The company website is down, as well as domains registered through GoDaddy, web sites and email accounts hosted on GoDaddy servers all are down. It can last one hour up to one month, and they are still working on it. GoDaddy was previously experienced DDoS attacks in 2007 and 2009.
Here is the notification from GoDaddy officials
At 10:25 am PT, GoDaddy.com and associated customer services experienced intermittent outages. Services began to be restored for the bulk of affected customers at 2:43 pm PT. At no time was any sensitive customer information, such as credit card data, passwords or names and addresses, compromised. We will provide an additional update within the next 24 hours. We want to thank our customers for their patience and support.
AnonymousOwn3r claims sole responsibility for the attack and states this is not an Anonymous collective action. But the reason behind the attack is still unclear.
